Another accused Ayaj Ali’s confesses to Rajon murder

1Another accused in a case filed over the brutal killing of Rajon has made his confessional statement before a district court.
Metropolitan Magistrate-1 Shahedul Karim recorded Ayaj Ali’s statement under section 164 of the code of criminal procedure (CrPC) on Tuesday evening.
Additional Deputy Commissioner (media) of Sylhet Metropolitan Police (SMP) Rahmatullah confirmed the news. Ayaj was picked up from the city’s Kumargaon area around 1am Saturday.
Rajon, the ill-fated teenager, was tortured to death by a group of persons at Kumargaon on the outskirts of Sylhet city around 7:30am on July 8.
The accused filmed the torture of the boy.
A 28-minute video, recorded on a mobile phone camera, shows the victim tied to a pole in front of a workshop in the still-closed Sultan Ali Market, beside the Dhaka-Sunamganj road.
From the video, it seemed there were five to six men who took part in the barbaric torture.
One Muhit was caught red-handed while dumping Rajon’s body on the day of the murder.
A murder case was filed in this connection by Jalalabad police, in which Rajon’s father later became a plaintiff.
Muhit was listed as the prime accused in the case, while his brother Kamrul Islam, 24, their accomplice Ali Haider, 34, and guard Moyna Miah, 45, were charged with murder as well.
Thirteen people have so far been arrested in connection with the gruesome murder.
Of the arrestees, eight have made their confessional statements separately.
